At the end of the semester students will be able to understand how economists measure and evaluate economic performance at the national and global levels by learning the theories which explain the determinants of national income, economic growth, employment, inflation, interest rates, and exchange rates in both closed and open economies. The course will also provide a theoretical framework in which both the short-run and long-run macroeconomic effects of alternative monetary and fiscal policies can be evaluated. Textbook: N. Gregory Mankiw, Principles of Macroeconomics, 5 th edition Lectures will draw heavily from contents of this book. Valuable resources for students can also be found at the textbook support site: http://www.thomsonedu.com/economics/mankiw/index.html In addition to the textbook, additional readings may be distributed, covering applications of the theories studied in class. The text and the additional readings together will provide you with the tools to understand and analyze macroeconomics.
